That said, you may face related issues like STDs, unwanted pregnancy, partners who see your relationship as more than just casual, etc.
And you should understand that these related factors could adversely affect your psychological wellbeing even if the sex itself does not.
Conversely, if you feel uncomfortable about what you’ve been doing and/or your behavior causes discomfort to someone else, then you may want to discuss your thoughts, feelings and sexual activity with a trusted friend or, better yet, a therapist who specializes in sexual issues.

Prior to this research, it was generally assumed that the psychological wellbeing of women was more likely to be negatively impacted by casual sex than that of men, primarily because the potential consequences (social shaming, feeling used/abused, pregnancy, etc.) would seem to be much higher.
Nevertheless, the findings of each study were consistent by gender.
Sex is a beautiful, necessary part of life but it feels amazing to share it with someone you can trust, care for and build a relationship with.
